INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian University department of athletics is proud to announce the expansion of the department with the addition of women's lacrosse beginning with the 2015-16 season of competition, director of athletics Steve Downing announced on Thursday.

"We are proud to continue the expansion of our department," said Downing. "We have added women's soccer (1998), women's golf (2004), men's football (2007) and men's and women's bowling (2010) in the past two decades and the addition of women's lacrosse just makes sense. It's an emerging sport across the nation and we are looking to bring in the top quality student-athletes who will not only compete for championships, but also be strong students in the classroom."

In 2015-16, the Knights will compete as a provisional member of the National Women's Lacrosse League (NWLL) with the 2015-16 season being an exhibition season. MU will begin full competition in 2016-17 as a full member of the NWLL.

Women's lacrosse is the 23rd sport within the department of athletics.
